Description: The 1990 Farm Bill created the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) to restore and protect wetland, which as of 2002 has enrolled over 1.4 million acres of wetland and upland habitat in 49 states and Puerto Rico. The program is administered by the U. S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resource Conservation Service and delivered in cooperation with many partners from the private and government sector. The program targets converted or degraded wetlands, primarily cropland, with a high probability of successful restoration. It authorizes permanent and 30-year easements as well as 10-year agreements. Restoration costs from 75% to 100% are provided, depending on the length of the easement. Most of the acreage is enrolled with permanent easements, and the remaining are 30- year easements or 10-year contracts.

Keywords: easement, migratory birds, waterfowl, Wetlands Reserve Program
